Sports Betting App Review
Important For: Live Betting, Procrastinators
It took us 15.8 seconds from opening of the app to login and get to the home screen with user name and PW saved to the phone. Compared to the competition, it’s a bit slow.
Ease of Navigation
Important For: Beginners
The William Hill App is pretty easy to navigate using horizontal nav bar on top of the app that shows the most popular sports and using the A-Z Sports option in the bottom menu to find more obscure sports.
Variation of Sports
Beginning Bettors, Experienced Bettors, Professional Bettors, Non-mainstream sports bettors
Due to their global presence and length of time in market compared to the competition, William Hill offers a wide variety of sports across the United States and world including Auto, Baseball, Basketball, Fighting, Football, Golf, Hockey, Soccer, Tennis, Boxing and some other less popular sports.
Everybody, Professional Bettors, Bet Spreaders (numerous bets made per day)
While no New Jersey Sports Book offers better vigs than Vegas or offshore sports books (mainly due to NJ tax laws), William Hill offers standard respectable dime lines (-110 / -110) for spread lines. Money Line and other Alternate Line vigs do get pricey as the size of the favorite gets larger.
Pre-Game Betting Options
Beginners, Experienced Bettors, Professional Bettors
William Hill offers standard Money Line, Against the Spread, Over Under, Alternative Lines, Player Props, Game Props and Team Props before a game begins. The assortment of alternative lines and props isn’t quite as robust as other NJ sports books.
Important For: Prop Bettors
William Hill offers a very limited collection of pre-game player, team and game props compared to the competition perhaps due to putting more emphasis on a wider array of sports but offering less betting lines per sport.
Important For: Parlay Bettors
William Hill does allow cross sport parlays but does not offer the flexibility of other NJ sports book competitors in terms of allowing parlays with Alternate Lines and other more obscure lines they offer. Parlay payouts are in line with industry standards.
There is a 2500/1 cap on parlay payouts so if you are playing 8, 9 or 10 team parlays with money line underdogs especially be careful to make sure you don’t lose value by capping out at the 2500/1 limit when your parlay should really be paying much higher odds.
Important For: Live Bettors
William Hill does offer live betting which accessed with the In-Play button on the top nav bar. Standard Money Line, Spread and O/U totals are offered in game with no increased vigs compared to pre-game bets, which is a plus compared to the competition. William Hill does lack the assortment of in game betting options on alternate lines and player props compared to other NJ sports books.
Important For: Everybody
William Hill offers multiple ways to deposit into your account including bank wires, Prepaid Card, Credit / Debit Card and in person deposit methods. All deposits are credited to your account immediately. Some banks will not allow credit card or debit card deposits at any sports book, which is where the Prepaid Card option comes in handy.
Important For: Everybody
Currently, William Hill is one of two sports books in NJ that offer in person withdrawals for online account holders. With locations at Monmouth Park and Atlantic City, this means when you have a big day or just need money from your account you can take a drive and withdraw money without having to wait for a bank wire or for a prepaid card to be credited with your funds.
William Hill does also offers withdrawals to a Prepaid Card which can be used at any ATM (for a small withdrawal fee + any fees charged at the ATM).
A huge negative is no bank wire withdrawal method is currently offered.
Important For: New Players, Beginners, Bonus Seekers
William Hill offers a free $50 bonus for new players that wager $50 or more upon signup, which pales in comparison to other bonus offerings from less popular NJ sports books.
William Hill Sports Book & Betting App – Overall Recommendation
Overall Rating: B-
William Hill barely squeaks into B- range primarily because of it’s vigs and because of the physical presence in multiple locations within New Jersey to deposit and withdraw using cash. But, in general, William Hill sports book does not offer the pre-game betting lines, live betting lines, player and game prop lines or parlay flexibility that other newcomers to the NJ sports betting market offer which makes it a less attractive option for opening an account.
